    Hi Tony,...
    Yes...Lyngsat "lists" 1a at 19.2 , but if you go to the tracking page it
    advises that tracking is not available for this satellite.
    I checked some of the Intelsats , but will have to find my notes on which
    were out of position.Meanwhile I'm waiting for a reply from the guys at
    LogSat who are looking into this.
